With AXA’s global health cover, you’ll know that you and your family’s health is protected, wherever you are, whenever you need us.
So what’s the difference?
In a nutshell, travel insurance is a way of protecting you and your possessions against accidents and mishaps while spending a short time overseas. And although it will often include some kind of health benefits, they tend to be limited to accidents and emergencies– rather than everyday doctor’s visits or on-going care.
With travel insurance, most healthcare benefits are also capped – either financially or in terms of time – and give you very little choice of when and where you can be treated.
International Health Insurance is very different. It’s usually 100% about your health, so it doesn’t reimburse you for delayed flights, lost luggage or damage to your sunglasses. But it does cover you for much more than basic emergency healthcare – including visits to the doctor, routine checkups and even treatment for chronic conditions or serious illness like cancer. Plus you can access thousands of hospitals and clinics worldwide.
So if you’re heading abroad for longer than just a quick holiday, you’ll find that regular travel insurance won’t give you the level of cover you’re likely to need.
